We introduce a class of gold nanomolecules exhibiting anisotropy as a major feature by reporting steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence and anisotropy measurements and in-depth theoretical analysis of energetics and optical response of a recently synthesized Au21S(SAdm)15 nanomolecule (SAdm = adamantanethiol). Starting from single-crystal X-ray… CONTINUE READING
